Six members of the Hackney Pan-Disability Cricket Team experienced Cricket World Cup fever as they got to volunteer at Lords for the England v Australia clash.

Supervised by Alan Walsh and Gary Horsman, who run and coach No Limits, the Hackney Disability cricket project, the volunteers were part of the spectator service team guiding supporters to their destinations and facilities and also working to encourage participation in the fan zone.

Mr Horsman said: "They all really got stuck In to their tasks with relish - with a far greater enthusiasm and aptitude than expected.

"I think taking them outside of their routine domestic and social environments was a revelation for them."

"It was a great experience for them them all."
